INDIVIDUAL LISTS ARE DUE BY THE END OF THE DAY ON DECEMBER 14th, 2014

Image

RULES

1) Each individual list is to comprise no more or less than 50 films released from 2000-2009, ranked in your order of preference (with no ties).

2) Any feature film, documentary, experimental film, short film, music video, TV miniseries, TV movie, or TV special that fits in the category of a given list project is generally eligible.

3) Television series or seasons / episodes of television series are never ever eligible. Which means NO The Wire

4) Two-part films released separately (e.g. Kill Bills) count as one film. Each entry in a trilogy (e.g. Jackson's Lord of the Rings) counts as a separate film.

5. IMDB dates rule all. Original release only (the year by its title). No exceptions. I understand the ludicrousness of this, but there needs to be a consistent anchor.

6. If you would like to post a recommendation, I can post them up here so they can have easy access and hopefully higher viewing priority for others. Category will be "DDDer Recs"


DDDer Recs:
-Quinnsy Lohan: Valhalla Rising
-PBR Streetgang: Femme Fatale (De Palma)

Helpful resources:

-TSPDT's 21st Century Films: http://theyshootpictures.com/21stcentury.htm
-Pastemag's: http://www.pastemagazine.com/blogs/list ... -2009.html

*feel free to list more so I can put it up here. I saw dreww's muscling post and scrambled to post this all whilst needing to take a shit. brb.

Oooh, right there together are three big favorites of mine. Assuming I can find enough worthy films to make a list (and I don't see as many movies as I'd like anymore, but I'm pretty sure I'll make it), these should all be pretty high. Pan's Labryinth could end up as high as #2.

Wall-E will be number one.

I want to keep it pretty low. It probably should just be your highest priority film for people. Otherwise feel free to make recommendations throughout this thread

Recently rewatched The Darjeeling Limited and The Royal Tenenbaums. Wes Anderson has a style where even if the story is relatively bland (TDL) it's still very pleasurable to watch because of his controlled style. But although I've always liked it, I never understood why Tenenbaums is often considered Anderson's greatest film (though I think the people who used to say that now say so about Moonrise Kingdom, which I also rewatched recently and I disagree despite the amazing use of Hardy and Britten). Anyway, now I get it. I think I used to say that Rushmore was the best Anderson film because it found the happiest middle ground between spontaneity + roundness of characters/acting and Anderson's control-freak approach to directing/art design/editing, but now I think the perfect balance is in Tenenbaums. The editing here is probably his best ever; there are lots of those quick little controlled jokes, but also a lot of breathing room. Also there is one shot of Margot smoking in the bathtub that made me scream "I LOVE MOVIES!" which is something I haven't done in awhile. I love it when just the simple pleasure of how something is framed in widescreen can just overcome you. So yeah, hooray for this movie. Watch it again.
